Someone should tell Alanis she can add another verse to her song.

Someone should tell Alanis what the word ironic actually means. Oh wait, someone has — comedian Ed Byrne:

“There’s nothing ironic about being stuck in a traffic jam when you’re late for something. Unless you’re a town planner. If you were a town planner and you were on your way to a seminar of town planners at which you were giving a talk on how you solved the problem of traffic congestion in your area, couldn’t get to it because you were stuck in a traffic jam, that’d be well ironic.”

“Rain on your wedding day is ironic only if marrying a weatherman and he set the date.”

“A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break, that’s inconsiderate office management. A no-smoking sign in a cigarette factory – irony.”“Ten thousand spoons? How big is your sink, Alanis? What do you need this knife for – to stab the bloke who keeps leaving spoons all over your house?”

[Thanks to wikipedia for the quotes.]

Aha, but a song about Irony with no irony in it- now that’s ironic.

    “God bless that little non-irony song! The sweetest irony is that it’s a song called “Ironic” and it’s not filled with irony. The best moment I had surrounding that song was in a bookstore in New York. Someone came up to me and said, “You do realize that song is not filled with ironies.” I just nodded my head silently. And she said, “Is that the irony?” I just nodded my head and she walked out! [Laughs] It was such a sweet moment.”
